Adriana Bueno, The BiblioVan

Adriana Bueno is the founder of The BiblioVan, a mobile cultural space that brings books, educational games, art materials and movies to impoverished and isolated communities in the Colombian Amazon lacking access to cultural resources and constructive alternatives for the use of their free time. Working with local police officers, the BiblioVan helps community members engage with law enforcement in fun and positive ways, while providing literacy education and recreational activities for underserved youth.
